As Greninja received a Tera Raid Battle event, Pokemon Scarlet & Violet shifted the focus to another starter Pokemon. Here are the dates the Greninja Tera Raid will begin, as well as how to beat it.
Greninja, the Kalos starter, has taken center stage in Scarlet and Violet, the focus of the current major 7 Star Tera Raid Battle event. Previously, players had the opportunity to catch a Charizard and Cinderace with the Mightiest Mark, and the starter Pokemon trend has continued.
Trainers may have a tough task preparing for the Greninja Tera Raid battle, especially one with a 7 Star rating. This article will provide you with all you need to know about the Greninja Tera Raid battle in Scarlet and Violet, as well as the best Pokemon for the battle.
Dates for the Pokemon Scarlet & Violet Greninja Tera Raid Battle
The first Greninja Tera Raid Battle in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet took place from January 27 to January 29, and the second one will continue until February 10 and February 12.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet players have two sets of dates to face the Poison Tera Type Greninja as with previous 7 Star Tera Raid Battles.
Greninja comes with the Mightiest Mark as players will only be able to catch one save file per match. However, players up for the challenge must look for Black Tera Crystals across Paldea.
In Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, how do you beat Greninja Tera Raid Battle?
Greninja has excellent type coverage because to its moveset of the following:
- Gunk Shot
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Night Slash
- Toxic Spikes
- Double Team
Toxicroak can be a valuable partner. Due to the Dry Skin ability, the Pokemon resists poison and dark-type attacks and will not suffer water-type damage. Clodsire can also be a useful companion.
Greninja will be able to tank many Night Slash attacks if you followed the popular Slowbro and Stored Power strategy in the Cinderace Tera Raid Battle. Greninja is a Special Attacker.
Gastrodon is a great option as well, thanks to its Storm Drain ability. It can slap hard with Earth Power, and its Clear Smog is extremely helpful against Greninja's nasty Double Team.
Make sure your Pokemon is level 90 or higher, and that you have the correct moveset and held item to defeat Greninja. Terastallizing is also very important as it will allow you to do maximum damage to Tera Raid Shields.
